2024 Summer Program
Join us for this one week Urban Sketching Workshop, where we will merge education with adventure. We will go to different locations throughout the week and be inspired by diverse and interesting locations to draw. You will sharpen your observational skills and build confidence in drawing.
Drawing in a dynamic public space with ever-changing subjects and scenery fosters quick decision making, time-management and adaptability. Ultimately, this cultivates problem-solving skills and helps you to become more of a decisive artist. This will reduce your procrastination and increase productivity. It is also enjoyable and exhilarating!
Detailed Instructions & Real Time Feedback
Our instructor will guide you on how to form an analysis of the space and capture the composition quickly. She will give real time feedback and critique throughout all drawing sessions.
Our curated locations offer opportunities to draw open and unique areas with dynamic structure and perspective. The locations cater to the criteria sought by art admissions. Students can potentially use their pieces for their portfolio. Our locations are also carefully chosen with consideration to our students' comfort and to the weather during the workshop.
This workshop is taught by Ms. Anna, who has been teaching at Us Arts for many years. She works with high schools students in their portfolio preparation, and also teaches our Life Model Workshop.
Parents will drop students off/pick up at our CHANTILLY location. We will provide transportation for our students to and from the drawing locations.
